Default new to TTM

Hello,

I'm wanting to get into the TTM hobby. I have never done this before, I have a couple questions if anyone can help, I would appreciate it.

1) What am I going to need as far as envelopes and postage? What size? how much postage? any elaboration on this would be great, thanks

2) I'm debating on either sending cards to be auto'd or 8 1/2 x 11's .. is there a preference? I guess the answer to this would help with question 1.

3) How do i get the addresses? what are the most helpful web links?

4) Where do I start? Who would be the easiest to start with?

sorry for so many questions, but thanks in advance.

the sticky at the top of the thread is probably going to answer 99.9% of your questions. Very good resource to get started with.

Here is a bit of info I got from another site:


HERE IS A LIST OF THE WEBSITES I USE TO OBTAIN ADDRESSES FOR TTM.

1 FREE Celebrity Addresses for autographs, contacting celebrities and sending fan mail. is free
2 ★ FanMail.biz: The Celebrity Addresses Database is free
3 Tested Celebrity Addresses - Collect Autographs - Manage Your Collection at StarTiger has a monthly subscription fee
4 Celebrity Mailing Address Database Search. Good for movie stars.
5 Fanmail Addresses, Free Celebrity addresses, scans, photos, pictures
6http://www.hollywoodusa.co.uk/celebrity-homes.htm California addresses only

- I also send cards to the player’s current team is or You can also use wikipedia to find information on the person where they might live. Then go to Dex White Pages - Find People for Free, to try to look up their address.

- If the celebrity has a foundation sending an item to that location sometimes works for instance Peyton Manning has the peyback foundation is you were to send him an item to this address usually they send back either a preprint photo and sometimes they send an authentic photo.

- Using the players team address during the off season might be the best time to send them an item as they are not to busy to sign your item.

MOST IMPORTANT:
Keep in mind sometimes you won’t get your item back this is chance you take when sending an item to be signed. On fanmail.biz you can check for recent successes of that person to see if it is worthwhile to try to send an item.

Happy autograph collecting.

Photo mailers are more secure but they'll cost more to ship to the signer/back.
